What is that filler behind the battery infront of the LHM tank?
To the hydralic clutch;)
Of course!!

how silly of me.

What made you change from the TCT to the V6? I ask as my TCT is quicker than my V6 (although the V6 is an auto XM) But the TCT feels quicker than the V6 Xantia I had. Do you have any plans for your V6?

Probably the bean counters saw low sales of Activas and of V6s and concluded that V6 Activas wouldn't sell in worthwhile numbers.
They would probably have sold far more with the V6 in them.

It is a shame we only got the TCT, its a great engine but its not excellent on fuel. The shame is we should have had the rest of the Activa range here, the V6 and also the diesels.

I dug out a few old Activa road testest the other day (I should scan them into here actually), one said they could see the Activa system being fitted to more, if not every, car in the future. Has anyone ever been more wrong? :lol:

No, he's right, such a system should be fitted to every car, especially in this safety-obsessed age. The Activa still holds the record for the Elk Test I believe...

:lol: I wish the prediction was right, that it would be fitted, as nothing else drives nearly as well once used to an Activa.
